ANNOUNCEMENT

The Canadian Association for Information Science is pleased to
announce, Advancing Knowledge: Expanding Horizons for
Information Science, its 30th annual conference to be held with
the Congress for the Social Sciences and Humanities of Canada
at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, from May 30 to
June 1, 2002.


CALL FOR PAPERS

Information science (IS) is the interdisciplinary, scholarly study of
information and its application within a diversity of social, cultural,
political, technological, organizational, and individual contexts.  In a
dynamic world environment, where global interconnections and
rapidly developing e-content are challenging established
approaches to the creation, organization, dissemination, and use
of information, continuously evolving theories and applications are
expanding the “reach” and recognized value of IS research.
Advancing knowledge speaks, not only to a process, but also to the
state of the “data to wisdom continuum” that, through the lens of
knowledge management, links human intellectual capital, tacit and
explicit knowledge, and information technologies within a broader
organizational or societal context.

In celebration of its 30th conference year, CAISACSI 2002 will
again provide a forum for presentation, discussion, and debate of
new ideas, original perspectives, engaging controversies, and
innovative applications.  This conference will explore the richness
of Information Science from five diverse, though related,
dimensions.  Each paper to be presented at CAIS/ACSI 2002 will
relate to at least one of the following:

Theories and Frameworks

As both a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary field, Information
Science employs a diversity of theories. Papers discussing these
theories and their epistemological and ontological foundations
might address the changing paradigms of IS, views on the nature
of information, models or frameworks for sense-making or
knowledge sharing, or other related topics. A wide range of
theoretical perspectives is welcome.

Methods and Applications

Information Science not only builds on its own extensive foundation
of methodologies and applications, but also draws in creative,
innovative ways from other disciplines to further the study of
information.  Papers in this section might illustrate a unique
application of a methodology from another discipline (e.g., social
network analysis; cross-cultural field studies; risk analysis; etc.), or
the further enhancement of an existing methodology within the IS
context.  Cultures and Policies

Information Science examines, operates within, and is impacted
by, a diversity of cultural, societal, political, and economic milieus.
Papers in this area might address such aspects as national or
cross-cultural information policy, intellectual property, technology
transfer, information as commodity and/or as a public good,
globalization and information, intellectual freedom, the economics
of information, the cultural construction of information, or other
similar issues.

Individuals and Organizations

Information Science boasts a body of distinguished research
exploring the interconnections between people and information,
and organizations/institutions and information.  Papers in this area
may explore long-standing concerns, such as relevance
determinations, archiving data and documents, information needs
and information seeking behaviours, environmental scanning,
institutional valuing of information, organizational intelligence,
information for competitive/business/operational advantage, or
other issues.

Technologies and Systems

Papers in this section will focus on new developments and
applications of existing or emerging technologies that might
include neural networks, automatic classifiers and indexers,
search engines, mark-up languages, Web-enabled collaborative
work tools, knowledge management platforms, metadata
applications, communications protocols, and human-computer
interface prototypes or designs.  Papers may also address
“systems” from a broader operational or organizational
perspective, such as electronic records systems.

SUBMISSIONS

Conference proposal submission:

Proposals for CAIS/ACSI 2002 should include a title, be no more
than 500 words long, and specify how they relate to one of the
areas within the conference program theme. Proposals with a
clearly articulated theoretical grounding and methodology, and
those that report on completed or ongoing research, will be given
preference. Diverse perspectives and methodologies are
welcome.  Proposals may be submitted in English or French.
Doctoral candidates are especially invited to submit a proposal for
the conference.

Deadline for proposals is January 15, 2002.

Proposals, including the name(s) of the author(s), complete
mailing and e-mail addresses, telephone and fax numbers,
should be sent electronically in Word, WordPerfect, or Rich Text
Format (RTF) to:
